The lowest of the three Ballogie beats, the Commonty ownership is shared with Finzean Estate although bookings and arrangements are carried out as with Carlogie and Ballogie.

Commonty is a secluded and extremely attractive beat. Access is gained by a forest road which descends through coniferous woodland to the river. . Commonty has three rotating beats from 1st February to end of June then it reverts to a two-rod beat. The main pool, the Garden, is an angler's delight and versatile to the most discerning fisher.

Chair, Loop, Bend and Points are productive pools with their own attractive characteristics. In all Commonty is a lovely beat of great variety where peace and quiet is an added bonus. Like all Ballogie beats, the flora and fauna is one of the main bonuses, with roe deer and otters common sights.

Fishing is from the right (South) bank of the River Dee 1.5 miles from Ballogie beat down to Upper Blackhall, opposite Sluie and Woodend beats.

There is one main hut with two secondary huts and vehicular access is available to all pools with the exception of Burnmouth, Suicide, Loop, Bend and Points where short walks by the river are necessary.

There is a shared ghillie included in the price of the beat from 01 February to the last week of June (Wk1 to Wk21), thereafter there is an additional charge per week.

Seasonal self-catering cottages are available for rent. Please phone Ballogie Estate for details and prices.
